    Description

    This unbelievable, 6 bedroom property in the Centre Park Historic District is nothing short of exquisite! This incredible home has been beautifully preserved since 1905 when it was originally owned by the President of the Pennsylvania Trust Company and features over 30 original stained glass windows. The expansive front porch contains a large, circular sitting area and offers gorgeous hardwood. Enter through the solid wood screen door and ornate stained glass front door with intricate carved wood and glistening stained glass transom window into the pristine, tiled breezeway. Just through another set of solid wood, stained glass doors is the grand parlor. This room will simply take your breath away boasting an $8,000 scenic mural on all four walls, Greek key hardwood flooring, carved wood grand staircase, original detailed wood framed windows and doorways, sparkling chandelier, cedar under-stairway storage closet, and original solid wood pocket doors to both the dining room and living room. The living room continues the same Greek key hardwood flooring design, and offers elegantly designed crown molding, marvelous scrolled woodworking, cast iron, wood burning fireplace with elaborate mantle and built-in mirror, and immaculately maintained Palladian-top stained glass windows. The dining room is equally as magnificent, featuring original built-in cabinetry with added under-cabinet lighting, glimmering chandelier, crown molding, and second stair set to the second floor. Continue on to the 28 handle kitchen providing shining hardwood and wainscoting, recessed lighting, newer stainless appliances, double stainless sink with retractable faucet head, under cabinet lighting, restored original soap stone utility sink, and access door to the large screened in porch. The porch is a beautiful brilliant green, and provides electricity and storage area. Extensive, gorgeous, two tiered, hardscaped courtyard with mulched beds and fenced in yard complete this spectacular outdoor oasis. Make your way to the second floor to continue to be astounded by this home's incredible facets! Follow the scenic painting up the main staircase to the spacious master bedroom complete with sparkling hardwood, crown molding, intricate gargoyle door knocker, stained glass transom window, ceiling fan, and large cedar closet. The master bedroom offers an additional sitting room featuring carpeting and access to the private master bath, ceramic tile flooring, his & hers sinks, large vanity mirror, recessed lighting, wall sconces, and two large closets are just a few of the master bath's many attributes. Two additional bedrooms can be found on this floor and they match the extensive detail of the first. A shared hallway bathroom provides a beautifully detailed tile floor, large jetted tub, stained glass privacy windows, wainscoting, linen closet, and stall shower. The third floor contains 3 additional bedrooms, all containing brand new carpeting, gorgeous stained glass door entries, and cedar lined closets. The entire home has original, immaculately preserved door knobs and ornamented, cast iron radiators. Equipped with a newer gas furnace installed in 2016, which comes with a transferable 20 year extended warranty for parts, and a new roof installed in 2015, there is virtually nothing this elegant property doesn't provide. Call today for your showing of this breath-taking property, as photos simply cannot do it justice!
